Pound, Ezra (1885-1972)
Ezra Pound, poet, essayist, editor, and translator, was born on 30 October 1885 in Hailey, Idaho. He was educated at Hamilton College and the University of Pennyslvania. One of the great poets of the twentieth century, he lived most of his life in Europe, arriving in Italy in 1908. After World War II, he was found not mentally competent to stand trial for treason and was confined to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C. While there he wrote The Pisan Cantos (1949) which won him the Bollingen Prize. On his release in 1958 he returned to Italy. He died in Venice on 1 November 1972.
